Fresh Start Food Gardens and the Discovery Museum are teaming up to bring the joy of growing food home to your child this summer.  If you have ever considered starting a food garden, but have limited experience or space, our kids growing kits are the answer.  With our Potato Growing Kit for Kids, your child will successfully grow potatoes right in your backyard, on your deck, or even in your driveway. 

It's a fun hobby to explore together, and a great way to support the Discovery Museum when they need it most.
